Monica, I've had some rib/chest achyness as well. Not fun! But so far, I'm still the same measurement around that I was before (I know because I just measured myself for bras-can we get a drum roll here? 32F!!).
Shannon, drink your water!! I'm almost certain that was why I ended up having to go the hospital the other night.
Heve, 4 inches! Sofia 6 inches! Do you both feel like you're carrying high? I wonder why my ribs are still the same as before...my last pregnancy I went up one band size, but not until right near the end. maybe this time too?
Sofia, No advice on the cavities, but a big hug for you and DS. My dd is going to the dentist in a couple of weeks, and now I'm nervous!
Joy, I looked at your adorable belly, and also the nursery. I LOVE it!!! The walls in our daughter's room are textured, so we could only paint them a color, not a mural or anything. Anyway, I think the fishes are great, and I look forward to seeing the finished Horton. And can I just say that I'm in awe of your embroidery skills? Holy cow!
Which makes me realize, do you think we're getting close enough to Feb. that we could start thinking about a pampering our future babies thread? I'm sure there are mamas out there that are crafty, or those (like me) who know how to go online and order things
Anyway, I don't think poor Shannon should have to organize this again. How many people would be interested in participating?
On the linea nigra thing, I'm also fairly dark skinned (olive) and dark brown hair. They do say that darker women often get more prominent lineas. Mine has worked it's way above the belly button now too.
For those of you with no BH contractions, My first pregnancy, I didn't have them (or maybe just didn't feel them) at all. Not one. My first contraction that I felt wasn't until about 4-5 hours after my water broke. It is really weird to me that I'm having a bunch of them this time! So glad they're not making cervical changes though, whew.
Questions for you hypnobabies moms-#1 Where are you in the process? Have you been good and doing the scripts every day since you got the program? I did for a week, then slacked off, and now I'm starting up again. I'm on class/week 2, learning the finger drop technique and deepening hypnosis.
#2 Do any of you have partners and other children and are having a hard time finding time for your partner to listen to the CD's with you? We're going nuts trying to find an hour a week for him to listen to each CD with me.
#3 Do any of you fall asleep during the CD's? I know it says that you might be so deeply relaxed you will feel as if you are sleeping, and maybe that is what is happening, but there are parts of the CD I don't remember! Like today, I did the learning hypnosis one, and I got up to the part where I was creating anesthesia, and creating a lightswtich, and the next thing I remember it is telling me that if I haven't turned my lightswitch back on, to do so now. So I did, but I think I may have dozed off for about 10 min. I'm glad I'm getting relaxed, but I don't want to miss anything important! I'm going to try sitting up I think.
Anyway, that's all. My daughter decided that she didn't want to go to preschool this morning, and at first she had a huge tantrum and yelled at me and got destructive, and I'm sorry to say I yelled back a little. However, after much calming and nursing and mutual apologies, we ended up having a really nice day together. I'm almost glad she stayed home. I wish she could have told me why she wanted to be home today, she couldn't explain it to me. She told me that she wants to go to Montessori tomorrow, so I don't think it is a problem with school. Maybe it is just so many changes all at once, especially with her daddy going to work. I know that must be hard for her. Poor peanut, I feel so badly I yelled at her. I must give her extra hugs when she wakes up from her nap.
Okay, have a great day everyone!
